The descending contextual keyword is used in the orderby clause in query expressions to specify that the sort order is from largest to smallest.

The following example shows the use of descending in an orderby clause.

            IEnumerable<string> sortDescendingQuery =
                from vegetable in vegetables
                orderby vegetable descending
                select vegetable;
